Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, rashes can appear for an enormous variety of reasons, as irritation can arise from an equally vast variety of sources. Some of the most common causes of rashes include:
Topical creams such as hydrocortisone can help you find relief, as can itch and pain reduction techniques like applying a cold cloth to the affected area. Additionally, we always advise our patients to steer clear of environmental triggers when a pattern of skin irritation appears.
If your rash is severely painful or itchy, if it persists for an extended period of time, or if you simply have concerns about the source of the rash, it’s always a good idea to visit your dermatologist. The skin care experts at Mt. Lebanon Dermatology Associates can help identify the source of your rash and determine the appropriate treatment plan for you.
